VERANDA AT VILLA D'ESTE FOR LUNCH 

If you are looking to dine in a beautiful and picturesque location look no further than the Veranda at Villa D’este. With a serene atmosphere and attentive staff, you will have a dining experience to remember. We were served very quickly and were given excellent recommendations on what to order. Since we were still jet lagged, we opted to each order a pasta and were pleasantly surprised by the different flavors offered by each bite. The scamorza cheese offered the most delicate milky bite to offset the tang of the roasted tomato sauce on the fusilli, while the lobster perfectly complemented the rest of the ingredients of the fettuccine. 

Recommended Dishes:  

Fusilli with roasted tomato, scamorza cheese, and pennyroyal eggplants

Fettuccine with lobster, asparagus, Armagnac salted mullet roe

Tee Scale Rating: 5.6/10 

KOMO FUSHIONABLE TASTE 

My friend recommended this restaurant after I expressed to her that I was looking to take a break from pasta for the night. The takoyaki was extremely interesting, yet a dish I would recommend to try if you like octopus. It has a fried crust and a creamy inside, making it the perfect bite to start your meal. The Gunkan Creativo Hamachi is the perfect amount of crunch, yellowtail, and truffle wrapped into one delicate bite and left me wishing I had ordered more. I would recommend sampling different Gunkan from the large list they offer in order to satisfy your tastebuds and stomach. The chef recommended dessert of ravioli stuffed nutella bites with sorbet was the standout of the meal.
